Popular in the Confederacy during the Civil War for its all-purpose capabilities, the D-Guard bowie chopped branches, split logs, sliced saplings and even had its way with a Yankee or two. Re-enactors use it to dig cannon emplacements! The steel guard can withstand punishment and the massive, high carbon steel blade holds an edge well. A soldier on the move soon learns to travel light, so a handmade bowie was often treasured as a backup weapon when the entire cavalry were "under the guns." Grip is contoured wood with light stain. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Includes leather sheath with metal furniture.
  • Overall: 23"

Aside from being unsightly, a bad guard-to-blade joint is a sign of poor crftsmanship. Fixing the wide gaps in the guard-to-blade joint, and having the joint silver-soldered would improve the knife considerably and should be considered by Windlass in future manufacturing quality improvement. The bad guard to blade fit allows moisture and crud to enter into the handle and potentially cause rust at the critical joint. A soldered guard would make the joint stronger.

perfect for re-enacting Wheats Tigers. Real close to actual Bowie issued the Tiger Rifles.

This D-Guard is an awesome knife! This is more of an arsenal made D-Guard that you see once and a while, but is still a great weapon! Defarb on it is simple, you just need some sticker remover and something to remove the Windlass ink stamp. Took less than 5 minutes.
